Contrary to some of the reviews, I found the movie to be an interesting and funny. While this isn't your classic version of Dark Shadows, the movie is at times dark. I feel the director worked to pull your emotions to both the dark and the light....especially with the humor. I did think it was a little unfair to market the movie as a comedy, but it got me in there to see it. The only complaint that I have was that it was rated PG-13. This wasn't a PG-13 movie.
